Launching Ideas ... Recovering History
Was attached to NATC/WST/Attack Branch. After returning from an A-6 flight test as a BN on Friday the 13th of November 1964 we parked on the line and as the pilot shut-off the engines the wheels retracted and the A-6 just set on the deck. Not a lot of fun, but what are flight tests for?
